Serves 4

Ingredients

Crab flakes & brownmeat pack (half & half) 1 (100g)
Olive oil 1 tbsp
Tomato paste 1 tbsp
White wine 1 tbsp
Soup stock cube 1/3
Flavourings
Leeks 50-60g
Celery 50-60g
Carrots 50-60g
Potatoes 40-50g
Garlic 1 clove

Method

1
I used this half and half crab and brownmeat pack I bought from Waitrose.
2
Here are the flavourings vegetables, you could use spring onions or onions instead of the leeks.
3
Finely slice these vegetables and fry in olive oil.
4
When the vegetables are softened, add the tomato paste.
5
Add the crab pack from Step 1 and the white wine. Turn the heat to high and allow the alcohol to evaporate. Add 1/2 cup water and the soup stock.
6
Bring to the boil, put the lid on and turn down to a simmer for 5-10 minutes until the potato is cooked through.
7
Blend until smooth.
8
Add some milk to your favourite consistency and season with salt & pepper.

Tips & Note

・Using the brownmeat means you don't need to cook the crab shells - in this way you get the lovely flavour of a bisque.
・I recommend you use vegetable stock cubes (Kallo Organic Vegetable Stock Cubes).

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
